I got pregnant at a young age, and gave my child her biological father's last name. I married my husband when my daughter was a year old and he's been the only father she's ever known. Her bio-dad has been in and out of jail for all of her life, and living in a small community her last name was the source of much embarassment and ridicule by other students at her school. Despite her biological father's protests, Scott Volyn was able to convince the courts that it was a detriment to my child to NOT allow her to change her name to that of mine and my husband. Because Scott was such a strong advocate for me and my daughter, I was able to obtain a court order allowing me to officially change her name on her birth certificate, social security card, and on her school ID. I was so nervous about the court proceedings, since I'd never really been in the legal system before, but Scott was very reassuing and talked to me about what could happen - good and bad. I am grateful to Scott for his kind and honest manner dealing with me on this personal matter, and for his tenacity and strength in representing me.

I went to Scott because of a recommendation from a friend when my ex-wife decided that she wanted full-custody of our 3 children (we had 50/50 visitation). Scott was brilliant in his representation of me. He is very intelligent and was forceful when the situation called for it (court hearings or negotiations), but is also very thoughtful and compassionate. I believe that he truly understood my issue and the intricacies involved. Because of his dynamic and powerful representation of me I was awarded full custody of my 3 sons. I highly recommend Scott Volyn. He is very busy, and in high demand, but well worth it!

I was recomended to his firm through my clergy, I was told he was the most tenacious guy for my case. I have never used a lawyer before and my expectations were very high. I was made to do most of the legwork on my case and found that he is way to busy to really devote any actual attention to my case. I was never informed of the status until i would call to prod them along and was cancelled on multiple phone calls or meetings at the last minute. Im not saying he is a bad attorney, just too busy to handle your case and get results in a timely manner.

Mr. Volyn was a God-send for my case! He was thorough and articulate in gathering information and representing the best interests of me and my children in a very touchy divorce/custody case. I was witness to his high level of integrity and tenacity during my trial and was moved to tears by his closing statements because of how aptly he conveyed to the judge what was of highest importance to me in regards to outcome.

Scott is a man of his word and very intelligent. He is very busy and "in demand " . That is perhaps his only downfall, although understandable. The course of action he chose over a two year battle was sound and in this specific case he battled an intelligent individual with a personality disorder which made the entire event a long and arduous process for all involved. He is fair and honorable above all else.

Scott started very good handling my case, but i noticed he put it kind of "on the side" and stopped paying attention to it, i missed visitations with MY kids and my case took a long time because he went on vacation during the process, i'm very disappointed and already looking for another attorney since my case is going nowhere.

Honest, trustworthy and very straight forward. In unvarnished truth he will tell you exactly where you stand and what direction you should go. He has tenacity coupled with a degree of tenderness but never losing site of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for his client.
My only complaint is that he is very busy and the contact is last minute with urgency which can be unsettling when you are new to the legal system. Don't hire him if you are not going to trust him and let him do his job. He will not run up a bill with chit chat or unnecessary communication. If you need a hand holder this is not the guy. That being said he is always on top of the game and never misses a deadline, although sometimes you have to prod him a bit to give your case attention. He is honorable and knowledgeable. Straight forward is an understatement but he's not your therapist he is a brilliant attorney who sticks to the facts that matter and have a legal basis, he will cut you off on the frivolous fluff that so many clients want to vent about, this will save you money in the end. He is well respected in the community and has earned this respect following the values of his faith and commitment to his vocation.

I think that Scott Volyn is an excellent attorney, my only real complaint is that he was extremely busy with other matters and was unable to devote much time to my case. It was necessary for me to do most of the legwork and push him to get all of the discovery materials and to not settle the case with a plea agreement. In court Scott was well prepared and did a very good job of defending me and ultimately got the main charge against me dimissed.

I have known Scott for approximately 6 years. He has handled various legal matters for me, the most recent a home boundary line question. He has ALWAYS been an assett in the process with his thoughts, suggestions, legal abilities and sincerity. I HIGHLY recommend him on any matter that takes someone with these abilities.

I have known Mr Scott Volyn for about 5 years. He has represented me in the most proffessional manner, his ethics are of the highest standards. His friendship , courtesy ,knowledge and honesty have become very important to me during the last three years as he represented me in my divorce. I have used Scott as my attorney in my bussiness matters and in my will and estate advice. I have recommended him to a friend who has used Scotts services in 2 cases and won both of them. I will continue to use Scott Volyn in any and all my legal needs.

Scott's name was given to me by a mutual friend who described Scott as an intelligent lawyer with an athlete's competitive spirit. Scott was a wonderful representative of calm preparedness during what became a lengthy and tenacious divorce litigation. I so appreciated his knowledge, his calming presence, and his polite and respectful attitude in the courtroom, and outside of it. He helped me to stay focused on the larger picture, and he worked on my case in a caring and timely manner.

I have had the privileged of having Scott as an attorney in my child custody case for over 4 years. Before Scott I sought out legal counsel with 4 other attorney’s in the Wenatchee area only to have spent thousands of dollars for an enormous emotional battle. I will never use another attorney again, Scott is trustworthy, honest and a devout Christian. Truly one of a kind. I also would like to comment on his staff. Through out this long battle since 2001 I have never encountered an attorney or there staff who are like Scotts. They are fabulous and I’m so grateful to have them to answer all my questions.

Scott Volyn has provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. While working with Scott, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong.
I would highly recommend Scott to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Scott Volyn again.
